When issues such as misaligned bites or crooked teeth arise, our expert orthodontists use braces to guide teeth into their proper position. Through moderate, consistent pressure, your teeth will be shifted into the ideal direction required for your specific needs.
During your treatment, regularly scheduled visits will be made to our office and the progression will be closely monitored. For conventional braces, those visits will include tightening of the appliance as the teeth shift. Because every patient’s needs are different, treatment time will vary according to factors such as overall health or the severity of the issue, among others. The average length of treatment is typically from one to three years.
At our office in Woodbury, a thorough evaluation will be completed followed by the development of an individualized treatment plan. Our expert team will address any questions or concerns you may have at any time during the treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Today, Invisalign is becoming more and more popular as an alternative to conventional braces. The Invisalign system involves the use of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made according to an individual’s need. They are comfortable and easy to use. The aligners are worn for approximately two weeks, at which time they are replaced with a new set. The fact that they are removable means that you will have no restrictions on food like with other braces, and your oral hygiene habits remain the same. One of the greatest benefits to many people is that fact that others will not be able to tell that you are wearing braces.
Should I Opt For Self-Ligating Braces?
As an alternative to traditional braces, Self-Ligating Braces work well for many patients. There are no ligatures like bands, ties or elastics involved and treatment time is reduced. These specialized braces are also more comfortable because they involve less tension on teeth.
Our specialists in Woodbury will determine whether Self-Ligating Braces will work for you following a comprehensive exam.
